Rotorua Shopping caters to a variety of interests and needs for a visitor.
What would you like? Souvenirs & Gifts, Supermarkets or Markets maybe? Or are you more interested in Outdoor Clothing & Equipment, whether it's for Running, Biking, Fishing & Hunting etc? And what about Second Hand shopping, some people love that.
For me it's all about saving time. If I know what's available and where
it is before I arrive I can be in and out doing what I really want to
It can be fun looking for that perfect souvenir
to take home when you're visiting distant shores.
Whether it's for yourself or as a gift for someone else, we have a good selection of souvenir shops to browse through.
From quirky kiwiana gifts, māori gifts, merino and possum clothing to NZ skincare ranges, you'll more than likely spend a few hours in these stores..
See also the tips for buying souvenirs to remember - bet you never
thought about buying them from a grocery store. And then, if you're from overseas, there's also
the tip for dealing with our lovely GST (Goods & Services Tax). Believe me, it's an art form within itself.
